The hotel is located in a nice neighbourhood and in a walking distance from the city center. Check-in and check-out was quick. Staff is nice. If you can take a room which is not by the elevator, because people are quite loudly during the night. In the shower there were some long blonde hair and the do not make the...

The hotel is located in a nice neighbourhood and in a walking distance from the city center. The rooms and amenities are rather basic,but clean and cosy. The hotel is very vibrant, with a lot of place to hung out in the lobby. Excellent wifi, parking and breakfast available. It was very basic, but I would come again.

We looked for a reasonable hotel in Vienna for a family trip, 8 adults and 8 kids. This hotel was a perfect match. Well located, very close to central places, rooms for parents with 3 kids, breakfast on-site and reasonable parking. This hotel is a low cost solution, clean, with all necessary facilities.

I was expecting for the hotel to be dumpy, but was pleasantly surprised. Nothing was luxurious, but everything worked and the room was clean. The hotel was in a very quiet area of Vienna, but was consequently a bit far away from the attractions in the city centre. Would definitely stay again at €45 per night for a single room.

75 euros for a room for 3 people use good for Vienna. It's not far from the downtown in Leopoldstadt. The rooms are very modern. There's a pub on the ground floor. Breakfasts are not included. Not sure if one should take a private room in Vienna because you will need only to spend a night.

Advantages: Quiet location. Modern and very clean rooms. Friendly Staff. Disadvantages: Wifi didn´t work properly in the rooms. A little noisy. You could hear the housekeepers cleaning in the morning. No attention to detail. Far from the city centre. It takes you easily 30 minutes on foot to get to main attractions. No restaurants or bars close by.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
